Markov/Kleisli categories / categorical approach to probability

September 21st, 2022, 9:01 am

Hello experts,

I was wondering what your thoughts were on the categorical approach to probability theory, as opposed to foundations based on Kolmogorov's axioms.

I think categorical probability does seem to have some successes, however, I am no expert in probability. Is this yet another algebraic geometry / category theory overreach / pointless fluffery ?

Just out of curiosity, does it support negatve categorical probability theory?
